July ATCs for Swap Group

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! The card crafting club, For The Love of Cards, through Facebook has moved onto its August events, so I'm sharing what I made in July 2022 with you. 

Alphabet Letter C

Beach/Tropical life

Red Rubber Stamp

All in Artist Trading Card size. The copper and the beach  were a tad over due to size of accents. 

Top to Bottom: Beach Life, Red Rubber, Letter C things

Coppery "Hi" dazzle (Paper Wishes website); copper sequins, copper Chrysanthemum, and a layered flourish die-cut stick-on with a coppery bronze flower all arranged onto mirrored foil and then on a kraft cardstock base. ( c is also for cursive; curves; circles; ....)

Another mirrored foil and kraft cardstock base and backdrop with blue scrap strips to simulate/faux water, tropical layered parrot stick-on, and a wood die-cut palm tree that's been painted brown on the trunk and green marker with a top layer of green glitter paint pen to add more shimmer. Definitely a tropical island beach scene! 

Teal cardstock for a different base and then easy make with an old sentiment red rubber stamp and 3 different stickers. The stamp is designed with the top and bottom swirled borders. Easy peasy.
